A July afternoon walk

In July, think January – the northern hemisphere equivalent- it can be quite cold, rainy, and breezy but it was a beautiful afternoon – around 50 F. The day started out foggy and then cloudy but ended nicely with a bit of sun. Yesterday, it rained all day which is more typical for a Patagonian winter day. ??????????

    • Thanks, Dani, for your kind words.
      I know the murta bush. These berries seem more redish while the murta berry is darker and more maroon and hangs individually on longer stems and murta leaves are smaller. But thanks for the guess!
